A week and a half ago we found Van a 12" bicycle on KSL. Spencer took the pedals off so that he could use it as a balance bike. Today, Van asked me to help him ride his friend's bike (with pedals). At first I thought, "Why, you have your own bike?" But then he insisted and I said okay. I held onto the seat for a bit and then let go to see what would happen. And wouldn't you know, he did it! He rode a bike! Makes a mama proud.
